Persona Non Grata Status: For the purposes of this policy, “persona non grata (PNG) status” refers to the subject of a PNG Notification who has exhibited behavior that has been deemed detrimental to the College community and thus is no longer permitted to frequent or be present in any or specified College locations.
Persona Non Grata Notification: For purposes of this policy, “persona non grata (PNG) notification” refers to the letter issued to the subject describing the College facilities to which the subject is denied entry and the terms and duration of any restrictions.
Consequences of Non-Compliance
The individual in violation of the terms of the PNG may be arrested by a Fort Lewis College Police Officer for trespass.
This policy was first approved February 11, 2015 by the President upon recommendation of the President's Cabinet. This revision was approved September 23, 2015 by the President upon recommendation of the President's Cabinet. The revision (1) stated that the President delegates responsibility for making Persona Non Grata determinations to the Vice President for Student Affairs and/or the Chief of Fort Lewis College Police and (2) simplified the procedural statement for making a PNG determination and issuing a PNG notification.
Policy revised in August 2021 to reflect new organizational structure.
